What our Students are Saying

  • My experience at Yoga Teacher Training with ShivaShakti School of Yoga was life-changing and exceeded my expectations to say the least. The owners and educators of the school have more in-depth knowledge and real world experience than many other schools and instructors. The classes were engaging, motivating, and encouraging every step of the way. I feel they went above and beyond what most schools offer in many ways. I plan to take my 500-YTT training with them in the future. They are a cut above. I would highly recommend this school to any serious yoga student. –T. G., Yoga Teacher

  • The teachings at ShivaShakti are authentic and comprehensive. The instructors are genuine, experienced, and compassionate. I would highly recommend this life-changing experience to anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice or that want to pursue a teaching career. I am forever grateful for my YTT journey. Namaste. 
    –J. A., Yoga Teacher & Massage Therapist

  • I am grateful that the universe brought me to study at this incredible school. The teachers emit the true meaning of Yoga and are examples of people living from their hearts. Along with rich spiritual teachings, I also learned so much about anatomy & physiology along with the technique of many asana postures. This balanced course is set amongst an awe-inspiring natural landscape, being the perfect way to deepen anyone’s practice of yoga.
    – J. M., Yoga Teacher

  • I just completed the Yoga Nidra training this weekend in Scarborough. So deeply grateful for my wonderful group and sincere and authentic teachers. They brought such joy and compassion; I have never had such a profound training. I was there to develop a tool, acquire skills but was also given the gift of learning about myself. I am so inspired to continue learning with them and sharing what they have offered of their knowledge and experiences. I felt such a deep connection I will definitely return for more trainings.–A. W., Social Worker

  • Unpretentious teachers with a deep respect for the Yogic teachings and traditions. If you are searching for teachers that will inspire you and make you crave the deeper meanings and spiritual inspirations behind the physical practice, this is your new home.
    – A. S., Attorney
